Cardinal Newman Camp Out!
Staff and students at Cardinal Newman College took part in a Pyjama Day on Friday 10th November, to raise money for the Foxton Centre. Organised by the Health and Social Care Department, people across college donned their PJs and their onsies and raised a fantastic total of £423.90!
Following on from this success, our students then took part in a ‘Camp Out’ on Friday 17th November, where students and staff were ‘camping out’ in and around the St Augustine Building throughout the day to promote awareness of homelessness. The Foxton Centre is a community centre in the heart of Preston which offers support to a range of individuals, including a really strong programme for homelessness. The money raised is hoped to help the Centre to fund a renovation project of a local recreation ground, to create a usable space for the whole community.
Their fantastic hard work raised a further £281.67 bringing the total amount raised to a fantastic £705.57! Well done to all involved, your hard work is most definitely appreciated!
